Decentralized science aims to tackle well-known problems associated with scientific research through the use of innovative tools provided by blockchain technology and decentralized networks.

Metascience is the scientific discipline that studies the methodology and the implications of doing science, seeking to improve the quality of research and reduce wrongdoings in academia.

Imagine holding science to supreme standards of rigour - and doing so without the centralization of power in gatekeepers. It is the best possible path to the utopian dream of removing all barriers in the way of scienceTM.
